Investors should make an effort to know more of the companies they put their money in, Bursa Malaysia Bhd's chief executive officer, Datuk Tajuddin Atan said. "Risk is something we can manage if our decisions are well supported by a sound understanding of the business that we put our money into," he said at the launch of the OSK Investment Challenge (OSKIC) for college and university students, here, today.

He said the OSKIC is all about learning what to look for when someone makes the decision to invest in a company.

"Will the macro situation impact the earnings of the company? Does the company have its fundamental in place to see it through tough times? These are the questions one needs to ask," he added.

Tajuddin said in a digital environment, information moves rapidly, which means one needs to learn and move fast.

"Bursa Malaysia is always supportive of the education of investors," he added.

The OSKIC provides the right perspective towards giving an insight into the opportunities available in the stock market.

To date, more than 18,000 students from over 100 local colleges and universities, have registered for the competition.

This year's competition also includes additional elements such as a group category and awards for the lecturer with most teams and the lecturer with the best team.

The OSKIC is open to Malaysian students from local universities and colleges.

Registration is free, upon which, participants would be given RM100,000 in virtual money to trade based on actual real-time stock price

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
